I thought this was a total waste of good ingredients. I really wanted to like these, but they just didn't work the way the recipe was intended and tasted really strange. I mixed up all the ingredients in the first step--the ONLY thing I did differently was to use half the amount of cloves. I wish I had left them out completely because the flavor of cloves and fresh basil was overpowering. Second, the mixture was so wet and sticky there was no way to roll them into balls and then in cracker crumbs. I ended up mixing the crumbs into the chicken so it would hold together and then scooping them into "balls". Even then they were still way too soft to fry in oil, so I baked them like another reviewer had done. Once baked they had a nice texture and got crunchy on the outside, but they tasted awful! My husband was really hungry and managed to eat several by dipping them in mustard, but he said they still tasted too much like cloves.
